{{Infobox awards list}} is used for awards lists to show a summary of notable awards won or nominated.


{{{name}}} awards and nominations
Template:Multiple image
Totals[lower-alpha 1]

The infobox may be added by pasting the template as detailed below into an article, typically at the top of an article above the lead section. Organizations without a Wikipedia page are not included in list of accolades per WP:FILMACCOLADES.

Basic parameters

The following are the "basic" parameters that will be used in almost every infobox.

{{Infobox awards list
| title        = <!-- use "name = " to display "List of awards and nominations received by {{{name}}}"-->
| image        = 
| image_size   = 
| alt          = 
| caption      = 
| wins         = 
| nominations  = 
  1. Certain award groups do not simply award one winner. They recognize several different recipients, have runners-up, and have third place. Since this is a specific recognition and is different from losing an award, runner-up mentions are considered wins in this award tally. For simplification and to avoid errors, each award in this list has been presumed to have had a prior nomination.

Named awards

This template has a number of "named" awards. Each specifically named parameter corresponds to one specific award ceremony. The parameter includes a W or N to define the total number of awards won or nominated.

|AmericanW = 0
|AmericanN = 1
|GrammyW = 3
|GrammyN = 2

The above example indicates that the group or artist American Music Award was nominated for 1 American Music Award, won 3 Grammy Awards, and was nominated for 2 Grammy Awards.

Full list of named awards

Award#, award#W, and award#N

Adds an additional award not listed above to the bottom of the list, where # is any number from 1-20. Use with Award#N and Award#W.

| award1 = [[TRL Awards]]
| award1W = 1
| award1N = 0
| award2 = [[Canadian Radio Music Awards|CRM Awards]]
| award2W = 1
| award2N = 0
| award3 = [[UK Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards]]
| award3W = 1
| award3N = 0

Custom awards

An additional way to add custom awards is to use {{Custom award}} within the |awards= parameter. This method gives the user the ability to manipulate the order in which the awards appear; however, all awards within the custom parameter will appear at the very bottom of the awards list if other awards parameters are defined.

| awards       = 
{{Custom award|Award #1 name|wins|nominations}}
{{Custom award|Award #2 name|wins|nominations}}

The example infobox (right) uses | awards = {{Custom award|Award name|{{{2}}}|{{{3}}} }}
